Sick Rainbow Lorikeet

I am at a loss as to what to do for my baby. I took him to the vet 2 months ago and he was diagnosed with a condition, putting it shortly though a puncherd air sack. He goes between getting better then back to being sickly. He has never lost his appetite though?

Does anyone else bird have this? I want to know if my baby will ever totally get better and be back to his old self

***Tonight, as instructed by the vet I squeezed him a little and he looked like he was gagging and then shook his head and a little liquid came up, was that because he just ate or was he throwing up? Is throwing up ok for a bird like him?

Which air sac is ruptured? How old is your bird?
